Review ~ Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I delved into this Maeve Binchy book after reading her very last book. I like her writing style, it’s easy to follow and she does it with such style. Again, she took a vast variety of characters and does it with such ease so we can follow along without trouble. Everyone seems to intermingle at some point but their connections are so vital.
This particular story, in Ireland, is mainly about a man who’s a big drunk and still lives with his parents. Almost thirty and no future plans to change that, he gets a call from a one night stand that he can’t even remember. She’s dying and pregnant with his child and wants him to raise the baby. She’ll die when the baby is born.
Bring in his shock with the cast of characters that Binchy created and we have a great story. There are meddlers and helpers and troubles, but it all works out in the end.
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
